For recording artist, actor, and performer Reid Soria, Autism Sings is the culmination of years spent overcoming the odds.  Diagnosed with autism at the age of 3, Reid was never expected to be able to communicate or connect with the world around him.  Now 31, Reid has channeled his talents and sheer grit into an unprecedented story of hope.  And in finding his own voice, Reid has found a new voice for autism and is communicating and connecting beyond what was once considered possible.  Follow the story and become a part of the dream.        When words fail, Autism Sings!

In June, Reid was invited to sing at Camp Kate in Conyers, GA. The Camp, sponsored by the Longleaf Foundation, ministers to children who have experienced the death of a loved one. Photo right,  Jane and Rick Caruso, Camp Kate organizers, and Reid at Camp Kate performance. 

On Friday April 7th, Autism Sings presented an Autism Awareness program for the ASPIRE students at Elliot Point Elementary School, FWB. Autism Sings has developed this program and it is especially designed for schools and students. The program includes  Jo Soria, RN, discussing autism and how it may relate to students, discussing how we can learn to reach out to those who may have various differences,  encouraging students to try new experiences that will help broaden their horizons, and encouraging students to work hard to overcome obstacles.  Included in the program were Reid singing a few relevant songs, and interaction with the students as they sang and danced along  with him. Our multimedia presentation included PowerPoint slides of Reid overcoming his own obstacles and a short video clip of Reid singing and dancing with the Fred Astaire Studio dancers at the Mattie Kelly Arts Theater. Last school year, the Okaloosa School District Title I Office invited Autism Sings to present our program to four schools and invited us back for the current school year.   Like the previous presentations, this year's program has met with rave reviews from students and teachers.  The goal of our program is to reach a young generation about autism, acceptance, and working hard to realize their dreams. Contact us if you would like to discuss the 45-60 minute program for your school, camp, or event.

Reid onstage at the Houston Flywheel Festival in Houston, MS. Big SHOUT OUTs to Big L, Billy, and Sonora Sound  for the great sound system support, and to Ms. Joyce East, Executive Director of the Chickasaw Development Foundation, for inviting Reid to perform.

America’s great network of highways began at the turn of the 20th century. In Tallahassee, people celebrated one of the important legs of that system: The Old Spanish Trail.


The Old Spanish Trail was an east-west network of roads from St. Augustine to San Diego, which ran through Tallahassee on today’s U.S. Hwy. 90. It was one of the dozens of “named” highways created to popularize automobile travel. The
OST opened in 1929 with a cross-country motorcade from San Diego to St. Augustine and back.


The
Old Spanish Trail Centennial Association celebrated that history with a convention in Tallahassee – marking the 100th anniversary of a 1917 convention in Tallahassee that helped plan the highway. Charlotte Kahl, San Antonio resident and Chair of the Old Spanish Trail Centennial Celebration invited Reid to sing at the Conference reception. (Photo above - Reid in period attire) Reid has also been invited to sing at the 2019 Receptions of the Celebration in Houston, TX (July 2019) and San Antonio, TX (November 2019).
